Mrs. Obama planned campaign events in Fountain and Durango Wednesday. She scheduled a campaign visit to Castle Rock for Thursday.
The first lady stumped for her husband Tuesday in northern Virginia, saying that "cutting Sesame Street is no way to balance the budget."
Her remark about "Sesame Street" was an indirect swipe at Republican Mitt Romney, who said at last week's debate that he'd cut funding for public broadcasting.
The first lady said her husband "inherited an economy in rapid decline."
Mrs. Obama was in Colorado just last week, attending the first presidential debate at the University of Denver.
